How far Pendlebury has fallen

Bucks once again outcoached.

Mihocek got murdered by Mcgovern.

Put Pendlebury in stoppages instead of Sier? Sier was like half our midfield in the first half with 16 possessions and like 65% TOG, finished the game with 55%, most on the bench...

Also we certainly needed another key defedner (Reid, Moore), Howe is an intercepting 3rd tall, not a key position player.
Pendles' SC in the finals: 79, 102, 83, 58.

My 2 bobs worth. We all see the game differently, I saw the Pies panic kicking in the second half. I was waiting for them to play the short game for a while, but they just kept panic kicking long.
ON THE DAY, the best team won. Congrats to WCEs.
West Coast have an amazing defensive setup.

Best marking team in the comp.

Should have tried switching sides kicking out or going up the guts handball zig-zag

5 bloody goals up and still couldn't get the job done

Mayne did the job on McGovern after 1/4 time in the previous final so not sure why they did not give him the job again.

Once Darling got his skates on and Vardy dragged Langdon back our intercepting option was limited , JJK , Darling , Vardy even Lycett all looked dangerous , all we had was Cox after 1/2 time.

Pendles has looked slower and not 100% the last 2 months.

No rest for the wicked...
1st Test starts Sunday week , probably our worst batting lineup in 30 years , so it is going to be a long , long summer.

Might need to find a rule book and try and understand the NFL or something

It’s great to see 7 taking on the women’s matches. I was worried with 10 losing the Big Bash that we might see less, but this is a good start.

Pretty sure part of the deal was that the majority of the woman's Internationals would be shown on 7.

Cricket Australia is trying to make the Woman's Big Bash the Number 4 League in Australia , and is trying to get cricket on TV during October (ok it is the 29th September) to try and grab the market between football and Nov/Dec Men's Internationals.

The down side is they still have the contract for the Tennis in January so a lot of the Big Bash (Men's) will be on Fox.
